One Disk for WindowsXPsp3 the second disk for Windows7

#1
Hi all,

I have EasyBCD 2.1.2
Previousl i had one disk with WindowsXP with system partion is active.
Then I removed the disk(winXP) from machine for using only the new OS Windows7.
So I installed Windows7 on a new disk with system partion is active.
After awhile I decided to put two disks an the same machine.
When Disk_C (WinXP) defined as first disk at BIOS second disk is Disk_F (Win_7)

When I boot the machine loads the WindowsXP .

HOW I CAN MAKE AMENU TO CHOOSE WHICH ONE OF THE OS I WANT TO BOOT?

THANKS
A.ENDER

Put W7 HDD before XP in the BIOS HDD boot sequence.
(How to access/enter Motherboard BIOS)
Boot W7
Install EasyBCD on W7 (or create a shortcut to execute it from wherever it resides on XP)
Add an entry for XP (let EasyBCD auto-configure)
Don't change what EasyBCD sets up.
Reboot
Choose XP
Run this registry hack on XP to prevent it from damaging W7 restore points
